Well, that seems to have been a cheap fix- I reinstalled the drive and rode it for about 15 minutes yesterday, which was a good thing, considering I still have breathing problems from COVID. I still...

I asked the guy I got the trainer from and he told me he didn't change the oil, then I talked with someone at a place that sells & repairs machinery- decided to guy some 40wt and try that. If it's...

I was thinking about using power steering or tranny fluid- both handle far higher temperatures they're pretty stable and they contain anti-foaming agents. Pretty sure the viscosity would be OK, too. ...

My trainer is from Blackburn but they said they have no info, which may well be due to the fact that they just buy products that are designed by someone else- why go through the expense of designing...

Shouldn't it do that constantly? It doesn't- only starts after about 15 minutes and only if I'm in a higher gear, riding fairly hard. I'm not standing up because I'm still rehabbing my knee, so I'm...

The rear bearings felt beautiful when I checked them but since I was in the process of going through the bike, I did clean & lube everything. I like to set my bearings so there's no play and there's...

I used it, it just had this issue and I ride every time I go for therapy so it's not my only option.

By design, the faster the impeller spins, the harder it is to move in any fluid but the oil that's in there is very thick. I would have assumed it would be thinner since even an automatic...

How thick (WQRT viscosity) is the lubricant? I did see it all over when I searched for it.

I expect some burn and being huffy-puffy after/during a ride- that's part of the experience. If I only...

I went to an orthopod around Aug 1 and he didn't think surgery was necessary, although I should have asked more questions about getting some kind of timeline for recovery. I don't expect pinpoint...

Just to be clear, it's fine for awhile and then, it becomes more difficult to turn the impeller and it feels almost like I'm on a washboard road or path. I had a wind trainer before and I hated it,...

I don't like the 'everything is disposable' mentality and since this doesn't have the above mentioned silicone, it's likely that someone changed it. Maybe someone sells some other kind of oil based...

OK, I have varied the pressure on the tire, no change. I removed the flywheel assembly from the base and opened it- seems as thick as 80-90wt gear oil and smells similar, too. I called Jensen Bike...
